Racial differences in care of patients with hemophilia

Abstract

Hemophilia treatment centers were first established in the mid­-1970s to provide optimal and coordinated medical care to patients with the disorder. Our study suggests that blacks with hemophilia may be receiving less coordinated care and less appropriate blood­ product therapy than whites with hemophilia. Differences in health care, therapy, and exposure to blood products should be considered when one is comparing HIV-associated morbidity and mortality between black and white patients with this condition.
